Thanks Scott for posting this.
As it happens, we recently took our cat to the vet for an eye infection.  It
turns out he has a chronic eye infection which is viral, probably a
left-over from a upper respiratory infection he got when he was at the
animal shelter.  This causes him constant tearing in one eye.
The vet says they're finding an amino-acid called Lysine, which has
absolutely no harmful effects, can sometimes act as an anti-viral agent, and
if we didn't mind spending the money for the Lysine in pet treat form, he
suggested we try it.
Well, after a few weeks on it, our kitty's eye problem cleared up
completely!  We don't know if this is something he'll have to take
continually for the rest of his life, or if it actually cured it, but if you
have a pet with a viral problem of any kind, Lysine pet treats are
available, and probably worth trying.

Subject: [tabi] Free Veterinary Eye Exams in May 

I was just visiting my vet to pick up some supplies and I learned of my dog
guide's developing eye problem. It's a totally natural eye disorder that
will primarily effect her sight at night; I think it's called lentacular
sclerosis. I inquired about getting her a full eye exam and was told nobody
in town does that but there's a free program going on this May I thought
many on the list might be interested in. 
Anyone interested in getting an appointment for their service dog during the
month of May for a free eye exam should first go to the website,
www.ACVO.org <http://www.acvo.org/>  to register, then call the Jacksonville
Animal Eye Clinic at (904)998-7805 to make an appointment for here in
Tallahassee which will meet at the 
Allied Emergency Veterinary Hospital
2324 Centerville Rd. Tallahassee, Fl. 32308. I believe all of the
appointments will be on Thursdays in May as those were the options I was
offered when my vet helped me make the appointment for Karly on May 13. 
    I hope everyone with a dog guide takes advantage of this amazing
opportunity as it's far too difficult to walk all the way to Jacksonville
just to get your puppy an eye exam.
